The Process of Hypnotic Induction features Erickson in 1964, working with several different subjects. He demonstrates how to individualize the method of induction to fit the unique characteristics of the individual. Jeffrey Zeig discusses the microdynamics of technique that Erickson used in his 1964 inductions. Comments are aimed at clinicians experienced in hypnosis looking to refine their skills.
Hypnosis is not a thing, but a way that things happen. To make hypnosis happen a clinician needs to understand the underlying architecture of trance. Eliciting systemic components elicits trance. The grammar, context and relational elements of eliciting these components will be explained. We will develop an induction model based on three steps. This workshop will consist of lecture, demonstration and small group practice.
This session explores various methods for eliciting hypnotic trance in a therapy situation. The relevance of utilizing key aspects of a client's resources and symptoms, as well as different ways to gage and incorporate ongoing feedback will be emphasized.
Three brief, novel, creative and easy to learn approaches to the induction of therapeutic hypnosis that are appropriate for practically any client issue with any theoretical orientation will be shared with participants. All of these approaches have evolved from Erickson's original "hand levitation technique" and are consistent with the principles of art, beauty, and truth presented in the new 2008 series of "The Collected Works of Milton H. Erickson," Vol.1, "The Nature of Therapeutic Hypnosis."
Deconstructing trance into phenomenological components allows the hypnotherapist to target intensions strategically. Hypnosis will be divided into social, psychological, and interpersonal elements. Lecture, demonstration, and small group practice.
This segment will cover essential topics and terminology in hypnosis. The process of a hypnotic session will be explained. Participants will practice observing and elicitation of focused awareness in hypnotic subjects.
What is hypnosis? What is the Ericksonian difference? How do you help clients elicit a constructive trance experience? What is the most effective way to strengthen messages? In experiential workshop, participants will learn how to elicit a trance state and how to enhance responsiveness.
